MARIAN STATUES IN DUBLIN

RELIGION: MARIAN STATUES IN DUBLIN

I believe that there are more than twenty Marian statues in Dublin but in general they do not appear to be listed in any database or catalogue and therefore I am finding it difficult to track them down. I have always been aware of one in Stillorgan and one in Drumcondra [shown in this photograph]. Over the years I have seen others but cannot remember the exact locations but I am in the process of tracking them down and hopefully I can find them all before they begin to disappear.

My understanding is that most were erected on public land during the Marian Year of 1954 but I cannot find out who erected them or who is responsible for maintaining them. Any information would be appreciated
